The gates open at 1pm for the all-day outdoor show, and the amps crank up to 11 beginning at 2:15pm with a dozen hot ‘n’ heavy, hard-rockin’ Local 518 metal bands taking the stage throughout the day and deep into the night. The big bash is also doubling as the CD release party for Renewal of Faith’s new album, Behold the Wise.

Tickets are $10. Admission is age 16 and up unless accompanied by parent or guardian. There will be an outdoor beer truck, 50/50 raffles and food – $1 burgers and $1 hot dogs.

Don’t wanna drive? Act quick and grab a bus ticket from Trick Shot Billiards in Clifton Park. The bus will leave at 1pm sharp from Trick Shot Billiards and will return shortly after the conclusion of the show. Just $25 for the round-trip bus ride and admission to the bash. UPDATE: The bus trip has been cancelled due to lack of sales…

Here’s the line-up of bands slated to melt your mind at Amsterslam II:

Gunther Weezul
Renewal of Faith

Brick by Brick
Burial Mound
Sworn to Vengeance
